Dance MeditationEvery time i leave dance meditation, the world blooms for me. Every song i hear is my favorite song. Every person i meet is beautiful and interesting. Food is delectable. I feel gratitude for my life. So happy to be planted where i am. So happy to have this life.

A new way of being aliveYou must realize that most of my life was plagued by words. Constantly beautiful words I would think and arrange in my mind, and secretly plan to say to someone, sometime. Now I am able to just live sometimes, and breathe, without thinking of the world in words. This is a great relief to me and opens space in my life. Freedom from words, I guess. I can explore the parts of the universe that are not related to linear language.

Oppression/DependenceLately I've been realizing that oppression requireds dependence. I watched a person who is vulnerable to oppression because of dependence. If we are not dependent, we cannot be oppressed. We will simply leave and go somewhere else. Humans have certainly traveled the globe searching for freedom in the past. But I realize that my employer can oppress me only because I am dependent. Parents, husbands, wives can oppress when there is dependence. Being independent is your best defense against oppression. Believe me, it's not fun to be the oppressor. One must be constantly vigilant, enforce the rules, control others. It takes a lot of energy. Being the oppressor is not desireable.
